This is an original lacquer, original pads Leblanc System alto. These are some of the loudest, most in-tune, most modern altos ever made. This horn needs an overhaul of course. Pads are super old. But it’s one of the best deals there is in terms of quality for the money. This is a pro horn, made in France that was too expensive to keep manufacturing. These Leblanc System saxophones are seriously undervalued right now for how rare they are and for how great. The engraving is also deluxe. Includes a new ProTec Pro Pack contoured alto case as well that cost around $150.
